Today was the first day of our hacking workshop at the FFT Düsseldorf. One week long the students and us will hack the theater, the school, hard- and software and whatever else will come to mind.

The start today was already quite steep, all according to the motto “if it blinks, it’s cool” with a small bomb defusing game including hacker lemonade (club mate) and coffee break followed by a short introduction to Arduino and ensuing tinkering. Thanks to the funding of the program “Wege ins Theater!” (ways to the theater) of the ASSITEJ in the context of “Kultur macht stark!” (culture makes strong) as well as an awesome sponsoring from EXP-Tech we could start this day fully prepared and well equipped.

If you want to join us tomorrow, please meet us at the Chaosdorf, Hüttenstr. 35 in Düsseldorf at 4 pm and start soldering and designing small theatrical machines with us. We look forward to you!


Many thanks also to Mic of the Chaosdorf for his speech.
